NCFH support for 2013 NAP
The National Center for Farmworker Health’s Technical Assistance Services for the New Access Point PIN (HRSA-13-228)
The National Center for Farmworker Health would like to encourage communities to consider agricultural workers in their area while making plans to respond to the recently released New Access PIN (HRSA-13-228) from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Bureau of Primary Health Care (BHPC). This PIN offers an opportunity for organizations to reach out to new and/or additional special populations and to expand services to include them. The goal of NCFH is to assure that the agricultural worker population is appropriately served through this new funding opportunity. We are interested in hearing from you to know if you plan to apply to serve farmworkers, and if not, what prevents you from doing so. Please reply to Bethany Boggess at email@example.comNCFH can help your organization to estimate agricultural workers in your area. This is often the first step in weighing the options to include this population in your application.
Please note that although the numbers provided as estimates are the most recent data available, it is based on the USDA 2007 Census of Agriculture and is rather outdated. We will not have access to 2012 data until 2014.NCFH is also happy to provide a Letter of Support for your application. Please contact Lisa Miller at firstname.lastname@example.org.
